Default Aluminum Skids

i was wondering if anyone else has made any? i made some and love them, they didnt add hardly any weight to the car, and are going to out last the car itself. if you want some made, pm me, i'll give you a price. everyset is hand made.

Default skids

yes I made my own too, in about 1 hour, made a cardboard cut out with a spare chassis, the ft skid/bumper has taken a bunch of good licks without bending much. It sure beats paying $20+ bucks for a plastic piece that gonna give out on you. You can also see I made my own rear mud guards out of alum.
